Our beloved friend, sister and amazing artist/social activist, Anzi Matta, needs your help. After last year's motorcycle accident in which she broke bones and suffered two fractures in her left arm, she had to undergo bone surgery including the placement of metal pins. The operation went well and Anzi gradually adjusted.. Unfortunately the pin on her elbow has begun to move, it is actually now visibly protruding from her elbow (see photos) and has caused infection. Anzi is now frquently experiencing extreme pain. A minor operation to fix the pin in her elbow is urgently needeed so that the infection doesn't continue to spread.
Anzi's latest x-ray's images of her elbow can be accessed on her Facebook:
The operation will cost, according to the hospital administration, between 3.300.000 to 6.600.000 IDR (US$235.00 - US$470.00).
